It's amazing to me how everyone seems connected in this industry. From Show Hosts to Producers to Investors... and A LOT of what happens, takes place here in Clearwater.
On the flight home, I had to stop in Kansas and while I was waiting to board the next flight, I saw a man I recognized. I had seen him at the ERA Convention but I recognized him from somewhere else...I just couldn't figure out where.
Feeling pumped from all the good news I heard in Vegas, I said "Hi"! (like we were long lost friends) and sat down next to him. I KNEW he looked familiar! He (Brian) used to be a Host on Daytime (NBC) and I did a segment with him with my tee shirt line, Wear Your Manners. Small world!
As it turns out, he does much much more and we have worked with many of the same people in the industry. *I used to work on The Ricki Lake Show, Caryl and Marlyn Real Friends on ABC, HSN*
Forbes Riley (The Julia Roberts of Infomercials) was also on the flight so needless to say, I had the best seats in the house!
This 3 hour flight I was dreading now turned into a major networking opportunity for me... but not just that...Brian and Forbes were very nice and fun to talk to !
If you recall, I was demoing the Spin Gym by Forbes Riley at the Paris Pool on Sunday night and now I will be shooting an infomercial and testimonials tomorrow at Omni Comm Studios in Clearwater!
Looks like being in the right place at the right time really holds true here!
